Depressed ferret escapes circus with ape and parrot in tow
Em Russia Today.
A circus in the Siberian city of Chita is missing some of its animal stars. A ferret, an ape and a parrot have found a way out and headed for freedom. Management blames the bad weather, which made the performers gloomy and depressed.
“We believe that the animals escaped due to depression, since we have had unremitting rains here in Chita,” performance director of the circus Zhanna Lazerson told Interfax news agency.
“We later found the ape in a dog’s cage, where they slept together hugging,” she added.
The search for the ferret and the parrot is still underway. Lazerson says the bird’s acting partner is missing him a lot. As for the mammal, which is suspected of leading the grand escape, it is hoped that he will come back when he is hungry.
“Our ferret is a heavy eater and lazy too. He always takes long braeks after working,” the director said.
According to weather forecast, rains in the region will not stop until at least end of the week.
